Take me there to the west
for I've been waiting to see you

Girl looks so sad.
Hair slicked back with raindrops from her walk outside
It's good to be sad, sometimes.
No need to hide your doe eyes.

Light from the air.
Red as the rose wrapped 'round her feet.
Yellow flower cup reflects on her chin.
Some would pay to know why.

Take me there to the west
for I've been waiting to see you

I'd, I'd move
I'd, I'd move today
I'd, I'd move
I'd move today ( away )

Can't see for sure.
Buckets of blood fall from her eyes.
Tears burn right through the floor.
No one knows why, or understands how she can cry in this way.
The Episun must have take'd one of her eyes.
The Episun must have take'd one of her eyes.
The Episun must have take'd one of her eyes.
The Episun must have take'd one of her eyes.

    General Commenti THINK this song is about a girl he likes, who is sad, and he wants to be with her.

    this song completely encompasses how i feel about my ex right now. if he was to say to me 'come live here forever', i would be on the next flight there.

    i love this band.

    General Commenthe loves a girl that is sad. and he understands why, but he wishes she wasnt because it used to be so good when she was happy. he just wants to be with her. i swear that my ex wrote all of these songs.

    General Commenti can relate...
    if i didnt know better id say this song was about me.

    my one love,
    is a six hour drive to the east,

    never being able to see him,
    enduring lapses in time of not hearing from him,
    dreading those bittersweet dreams,
    avoiding sleep, just to avoid waking up alone.

    this song hits me so hard.

    regardless,
    i love you lyndon.
